Interview Details –
The interview was good. The team and the manager were excellent to talk to.
questions were apt to the position and my work experience.
I cleared all the questions.
Interview Question – How do you lower via inductance. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The interaction with the HR was very unpleasant. His unprofessional and uncouth behavior lead to my declining the offer. This doesn't appear to be in conformity with the stature and standard of nvidia.

Interview Details –
1st round - screen by hiring manager
2nd round - 4 people including recruiter
Final round with vp and another individual
Standard questions about my background and why I want to work there and what I can bring to the table. Quizzed me about the gaming industry and my knowledge of the company's products as the job required gaming and industry knowledge.
Thought the interview went well first 2 rounds. Round 2, I was a little uncertain about the outcome as I had mixed feelings about the entire interview process and felt I only made connection with only 2 out of the 4 people who interviewed me in the second round.
However, they called me back for the last round, so I thought, I guess it went ok. When I reached the last round, the vp seemed highly disinterested, asked me which role I was interviewing for (as there were several and that totally threw me off as he mentioned the titles of the roles that were open really quickly and asked me which one it was). After that, he directly told me I wasn't a good fit, and that's within 5 minutes of shaking hands with him. I was a little shaken by that comment, my jaw probably dropped, and I knew it was pointless to continue the interrogation.
Not sure if that last round was necessary if he already made up his mind. They could have just called me and told me I was not a good fit, instead of requesting me to go into the interview - I had to request time off to go in for the interview too.
Recruiter, the Sourcer, hiring manager and the other team members were really nice. Overall, took between 6-7 weeks from submission of resume through the last round. Too bad there's no match, I would have loved to work there since my friends love working there and it boasts a great culture of getting things done and nurturing talent. Plus I'm a big fan of their products.

Interview Details – I applied through their website. One week later a recruiter sent me an email about another position, which was wrong. I accept to do the interview which was not interesting for me. So I sent an email back to the recruiter saying that. He finally schedule an interview for the right position. It was a phone interview for about 45 min. The hiring manager asked me about my background and then he asked me a question about OpenGL implementation. He seemed to like my answer but they said I was not a good fit for the position, which I truly disagrees. I don't know if this was the real reason or what.
Interview Question – It was a specific OpenGL implementation under X Window System which I don't recall. Answer Question
